It's such a shame that Challenge Cups games aren't factoring into tv schedules. When they've paid for the rights you'd think they would want to use them!

BT I suspect will show all the knockout games in the Challenge Cup. I do agree with your point. It would not have been a hardship for them to show at least 1 game/week.

A couple of months back there was a guy from epcr (maybe even the head guy?) on the craggy rugby podcast. He spoke about TV coverage a bit, and how they were looking at online more for the challenge cup in particular. When they streamed our game on the website/youtube I thought it worked well - no commentary, just the audio from the ref's mic. Maybe we'll see more of that in the last couple of rounds.

Every game should be broadcast like that.

Totally! I always tune into the ref link when I go to internationals - it often picks up some entertaining chat!

Surely that'd be a red button thing.

FR4 show a game free to air every weekend, usually the Saturday night one.
Clermont v Northampton is tomorrow at 8.
www.france.tv/france-4/direct.html
You need a VPN or whatever but it's much easier to get working from abroad than BBC, etc.
It's odd that BT don't rebroadcast it since all the work is done for them.
